Watercolour painting supplies
Do you have your supplies ready yet? If you don’t, here are some of my recommendations:

- Watercolour paper
- A paper towel
- A jar of clean water
Alright! Got your supplies and a clean desk to work on? Let’s watch some tutorials!

Learn watercolour painting: Online classes
Sometimes we learn better when we can see it in action! I’m a huge fan of learning to paint using videos because you can see everything in realtime, step-by-step. Here are two of my favourite beginner-friendly watercolour painting classes from Skillshare.
This class is perfect for anyone brand new to watercolour. Juliet teaches you the basics of watercolours, what supplies you need, and blending techniques. At the end of this short class you’ll have learned how to paint these fun patterned note cards. I highly recommend it.
Peggy Dean is one of my favourite Skillshare teachers. She shows you everything in an easy-to-understand manner. In this class you will learn to produce adorable illustrative watercolor paintings in no time flat. Because each project is broken into its own segment, this class will be perfect for those who don’t have a lot of time to spend learning in one sitting.
